Clinical documentation improvement (CDI) is a method for healthcare providers to collect, track, and analyze patient data while providing valuable feedback to physicians. Even though electronic health record (EHR) systems have been around for many decades, they have only partially succeeded in dealing with complex data sets. There is a growing demand for improved CDI technology, and AI (Artificial Intelligence) tools are the solution. CDI programs backed by AI tools have the potential to transform healthcare organizations dramatically.
With the growing need for better data quality, accurate reimbursement, and improved patient outcomes, the significance of a robust clinical documentation improvement (CDI) has grown. Healthcare systems require accurate CDI to bridge the gaps in coding and maintain quality care.
CDIs must align to the level of care required for each patient, to the patient’s medical history and population health. Quality ratings, reimbursements, denials, and patient well-being will suffer due to inaccurate, missing, or non-specific documentation.
High-quality, precise, and error-free documentation will accurately reflect the complexity of the patient’s condition and the care provided. It improves diagnostic accuracy and specificity by ensuring critical patient data is captured, giving clarity to physicians, and assisting coders in generating quality data. It will facilitate an effective way of collecting data elements for better analysis and timely reporting of hospital data.
A robust CDI improves focus on accountability, quality of patient outcomes, and mortality rates.
Handle Complex WorkflowsAI and related technologies aid CDI teams and improve operational efficiency. For instance, consider a CDIS (Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialist) managing 100 patient charts. Out of these, typically, 30% would require clarifications or follow-up. Without technology, the CDIS would need to manually review all the charts to identify those that need enhancement. AI can help the CDIS automatically capture these complex cases and spend minimum time on them.
